(1768 - 1852)

Born in Clermont-Ferrand, Antoine de Lhoyer served in the Gardes du Corps du Roi (The King’s Bodyguard) until its disbandment in 1791. Thereafter he embarked on a series of travels throughout Europe, serving in various anti-revolutionary armies before turning to a career as a guitarist, and as a teacher and composer for the instrument. In 1813 he returned to France, able after the fall of Napoleon to serve once more in the armies of the King. His musical activities seem to have come to an end in 1826 with his posting to a garrison in Corsica. His final years were again spent travelling, finally to Algeria.

Guitar Music

Lhoyer’s guitar duos demonstrate the composer’s eclectic style of writing, with the two instruments carefully balanced in the characteristic harmonic and structural musical idiom of his time.
